As an artist, I have a deep and compelling feeling that drives me to create new works of art. When the creative juices are flowing, it is all-consuming and I do not want to stop painting until the piece is finished.
My constant goal is to create something that is both beautiful and unique. I love to work with lots of color and to see how the colors react to each other. I also enjoy seeing how much strong shadows improve a painting. Currently, I am emphasizing strong lights and strong shadows in my paintings.
Since I work in oil, acrylic, and watercolor, this enables me to guide and teach my students much more effectively. Some of my students may be working in one medium while others in the same class are working in another medium but I can make the transition smoothly. I can share their successes and this the best part about teaching art to others.
